Chy Trevail Awarded Building of the Year 2016

The Chy Trevail office development for Cornwall Council was named Building of the Year at the recent Michelmores Property Awards 2016 at Sandy Park in Exeter.

Michelmores law firm host the annual awards to celebrate the best property and construction projects in the South West. Chy Trevail was up against strong competition in the category with the Genesis Building, Plymouth School of Creative Arts and Exeter Science Park Centre all shortlisted.

The new office development allowed Council staff to relocate from dispersed, inefficient smaller offices to a new purpose built, efficient and sustainable facility in Bodmin.

The building houses 600+ staff and includes a central atrium for the main reception and public facing facilities, as well as open plan flexible workspace over three floors. The layout of these floors has been developed to incorporate the principles of “Modern Working”, which allows for greater space utilisation and work space efficiency.

The build has a highly energy efficient design driven by a challenging DEC rating set by the client and incorporates 200kw photovoltaics to generate on-site renewable energy, low energy LED lighting, improved insulation, air tightness and measures to reduce water consumption.

David Malen, Senior Associate Director said:
“The Chy Trevail building is a demonstration of what real project teamwork can achieve, the client, consultants and contractor all pulling together, delivering a challenging clients brief on-time and on budget. This was done whilst at the same time maintaining a focus and design quality, low operational costs and future sustainability”.
